Ed McMahon Settles Lawsuit Over Broken Neck

Ed McMahon has ended his civil case against those he blamed for his broken neck.

Attorneys for the former "Tonight" show sidekick have in recent weeks settled lawsuits against the hospital and doctors that McMahon claimed had failed to spot his broken neck and then failed to properly repair it.

On Thursday, attorneys for the 86-year-old TV personality filed for dismissal of his lawsuit against billionaire Robert Day and his wife. McMahon blamed conditions at the Days' home for his fall in March 2008.

Terms of the settlements haven't been disclosed in court records.

After the fall, McMahon suffered a series of financial setbacks. He was hospitalized earlier this year for treatment of pneumonia and other ailments.
